There's only one "i" in election
John Ibbitson, in The Globe, is convinced that Ignatieff is going to provoke an election in the New Year.
John Ivison, in the National Post, puts this interpretation to Ignatieff and receives the reply: No, that's not what he means.
In one of his earlier interviews, Mr. Ignatieff suggested that the party and the electorate are ready for a spring 2011 election. But when I put it to him that this sounds like he is itching to go to the polls, he was more circumspect.
"For nine months, we've been saying we disagree with their fiscal and economic policy. ... I'm not saying anything today I haven't been saying for nine months."
Confused? So am I.
